    Inconsistent experience (by project and partner)...and they really don't understand "me" nor "family" time

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsProvides a great career path. Growth and opportunities are there.
    Decent culture - they do a good job of discouraging bullying and discrimination of all types.
    They offer a good place to work in a down economy as they'll train you on some of the newest technologies and offer client experience on it. They also pay you even if you are on the bench during that time.
    They offer a venue if you want to establish expertise in any chosen area.
    Generous PTO (If you can take it)

    Cons(review is for Deloitte Consulting)
    Really not a decent place if you have a family as work-life balance is not that great.
    For the amount of travel and BS you have to put up with (almost consistently across the country) - the pay isn't that good. I can see plenty of similar positions in my local area for the same salary. You really get a feel that you work to make the partner as much money as he/she can in spite of your situation (understaffed/overworked)...and if your position can be done with an offshore candidate - the better! More money for the Partner. This leaves one to not feel valued.

    The title of this review hints at one large issue in that: I personally work to make a living and support my family...my work is NOT my life. This does not sit too well with the culture as I feel like i'm expected to work 12+ hr days...and if I do have any free time in the evening, well, that is a good time to work and network more! Weekends might be an excellent time to work - maybe even be called up out of the blue to do a proposal on the fly disrupting any type of predictability/continuity that you might want to construct.

    There are some great PPD's, however, treatment between those and the others is wildly different. This could lead to a great/doable project assignment to one where you are miserable and working ungodly hrs and at any/all cost.

    This is the only place that i've ever been at where the "leaders" (PPD's and such) completely expect everyone below them to engage them (not the other way around). In otherwords, If I have an expertise or interest in something - the upper management makes no effort to get to know nor engage people...they expect the individual to do all the pushing themselves (up) to them. This is completely backwards of every place i've ever heard of. Most places you are hired in and management (upper/middle) knows of your abilities and "embraces you" (so to speak). It is so backwards here that it's almost like you have to make the effort to go stand in line to kiss the ring of the PPD pope just to get even noticed! And yes, many PPD's do think of themselves as deities or close to it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue your consultants (all levels) a whole lot more - actually go out of your way to meet them and connect with them. Consider a local only (or at least regional only) consulting model. Be firm with and sticking to 3-4-5 (or similar).

    Good for someone who accepts traveling and work under tight schedule and pressure

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee) Costa Mesa, CA

    Nice people, great benefits, but extremely boring work.

    Tax (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsThe benefits: they offer a huge list of perks including health plans, retirement plans, rewards for joining gyms, etc. Plus they have an amazing new training facility.

    ConsMind-numbingly boring and monotonous work: Although I'm good with numbers, I am a creative person, so sitting in a cubicle and working with excel all day is hard for me. If you love accounting and it's not boring to you, then this is a good ace to start out.

    Okay start for developers. Hard to recommend Tulsa center to friends.

    Associate IV (Former Employee) Tulsa, OK

    ProsRelaxed place. They really knew how to bring in genuine people. Strong benefits. Opportunity to find interesting projects if you look for it.

    ConsGood luck finding projects. If you become a lone wolf developer, you'll be wishing you had a support team.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffice is losing its energy. Make salary competitive and be more transparent with projects. Town hall meetings were a facade.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
